Dr. Krupp has the utmost concern and respect for his patients and his goal is to treat his them in the most healthy, caring, holistic way possible and to share information about root canals with his patients so that they can make educated decisions about their oral health. He fully understands the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and realizes that; "You cannot be truly healthy without good oral health!"
What is Endodontics
Briefly, Endodontics is a recognized dental specialty that involves the treatment of the pulp (and root canals) of the tooth. The part of the tooth that you see above the gum line is called the crown and within it is where the pulp chamber is found. The rest of the tooth, the portion hidden beneath the gum line, is called the root. Though The pulp and channel or "root canal" that flows from it, contain soft tissue, made up mostly of blood vessels and nerves. Once bacteria (germs) are introduced into the pulp and the root canals, primarily because of tooth decay, periodontal disease, tooth fracture or other problems, it can infect this tissue and irreversibly damage it. When that happens, an Endodontist will remove the diseased pulp and seal the pulp chamber and root canals in order to save the tooth and prevent further infection and inflammation. After successful endodontic treatment has taken place, the tooth will be able to continue to function.
Holistic Endodontics is a philosophy that recognizes that the teeth and associated oral structures are a part of the whole body. Because of this important relationship, we offer a number of treatment options for root canals. Dr. Krupp also takes a unique Whole Body approach to oral health care; combining sound dental science, techniques, technology, and personal experience with a deep concern for his patients' health, emotional well-being and comfort.
As your Oral Health Endodontics Doctor, Dr. Krupp is aware that mercury vapor and root canal infections can have a negative impact on oral and overall health. Because of these concerns, we focus on patient education and not only do not use mercury amalgam (silver) filling but strive to remove them in a safe way.

NEW! Dr. Tom McGuire's new Video, Mercury: The Poison in Your Teeth conclusively proves that amalgam/silver fillings not only release toxic mercury vapor - but that the common act of brushing just one amalgam filling - will release more mercury than allowed by governmental regulatory agencies at the workplace! It also tells you what you can do about it. Click Here to watch this amazing video demonstration - and don’t forget to tell your friends and family!

A Personal Note from Dr. Tom
I know Dr. Krupp personally and have spend many hours talking to him about his health based approach to Endodontics (Treatment of Root Canals). I consider him be exceptionally highly trained, experienced, skilled and caring health-focused mercury safe Endodontist. I am impressed with the depth of his knowledge and understanding about the critically important relationship of oral to overall health and he utilizes this knowledge when designing the treatment of his patients. He promotes patient education and has a personal interest in the health and healing of his patients.
In my many years of being involved in Mercury Safe Dentistry I've only found a few Endodonts in the country who not only do not use mercury fillings in treating root canals but have also made their offices occupationally safe regarding mercury. His deep concern for his patients' health, his ongoing training in advanced Endodontics, and his concern for the safe removal of amalgam fillings makes him unique in this field.
I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a caring holistic and mercury safe Endodontist. Dr.Krupp is also a charter member of the International Association of Mercury Safe Dentists (IAMSD). I recommend visiting his website to learn more about his whole-body approach to treating root canals. When you visit his office, please let him know where you found out about him and tell him hello for me. Thanks!
